Almost A Breakout
This group combined tight musicianship and decent songwriting into what might be called a Vineyard Sound remix of the Grateful Dead, with a touch of the Doors on keyboards. The result is always pleasant and, on occasion, smokin', as on "World We" in the '96 performance. Those looking for "blues" won't find any, except for some occasional funk. With stronger songwriting, or a blowout soloist, this group eaisly could have made the national charts.
